Sunday Small Bites - smoked salmon


The ingredient was smoked salmon but I chose to use fresh salmon since I'm trying to avoid eating food with high salt content. I used fresh sashimi-grade salmon from Whole Foods which I kept in the freezer for 4-6 hours prior to combining it with the other ingredients.

This delicious, creamy and spicy salmon tartare turned out to be an amazing recipe. My husband enjoyed it so much that he was complaining that I didn't make enough. I used a mandoline to slice the potato to a very thin 1/16". The crisps were also great on their own.

From Saveur

Salmon Tartare on Potato Crisps

1 8"-long russet potato
2 tbsp. canola oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
1 lb. skinless boneless salmon filet or belly
3 tbsp. dijon mustard
2 tbsp. chopped cornichons
2 tbsp. chopped red onions
2 tbsp. rinsed and drained capers
2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
2 tbsp. finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
1 tbsp. finely chopped chives

1. Heat oven to 300°. Peel potato. Using a Japanese mandoline, slice potato lengthwise into twenty-five 1⁄16"-thick slices, stacking them to prevent from drying out.

2. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper; rub each with canola oil. Arrange potato slices on baking sheets, spacing them apart, and turn them in the oil to coat. Lightly sprinkle with salt and bake, rotating sheets and flipping potato slices every 5 minutes, until crisp and browned, 40–50 minutes. (Some will brown faster than others.) Transfer potato crisps to a paper towel–lined plate. Dab dry with a paper towel; set aside.

3. Cut salmon into 1⁄8" cubes. Transfer to a bowl and add dijon mustard, cornichons, onions, capers, and olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste.

4. Fold in parsley and chives. Chill for 30 minutes. Serve tartare on potato crisps garnished with chopped chives.

Hi Maria, your dish looks really delicious. I love the potato crips and the fresh salmon. That was so funny that your husband loved it so much he was looking for more...:)

Thanks so much for sharing your recipe. Have a wonderful evening!

Wow, this looks and sounds amazing. I've been thinking about buying a mandoline so I can make chips like that.

WOW - this looks soo good. I'd be afraid to make the crisps - I bet that I would eat them all! LOL
